Laughing in the face of terrorists: New Charlie Hebdo magazine sells out in shops across Paris within an hour

Charlie Hebdo resurrected its irreverent and often provocative newspaper today, featuring a caricature of the prophet Mohammed on the cover.

The magazine, which normally sells around 30,000 copies a week, had an initial unprecedented print run of three million. This has been increased to five million after copies were snapped up today.

Issues of the magazine had sold out across Paris news kiosks this morning within minutes.
